  • This is the Summary Page
  • Work off several manuals in parallel
  • Senior Members in your Area/Division Find a person you trust Toastmasters worldwide Online Discussion Groups LinkedIn: “The Official Toastmasters International Members Group” Google Group: "ToastmastersPrime". Yahoo Groups, Facebook: many groups for Districts & Clubs Blogs – e.g. John Zimmer Ellie May Challis born in Essex, England in 2004, was just 16 months old, when struck down with a near-fatal case of meningitis. She survived, but the severe effect of the deadly septicemia bacteria caused both her arms and legs to be amputated. Originally fitted with standard prosthetic legs, Ellie had a difficult time keeping up with her siblings (twin sister, Sophie and older siblings: Tai-la, 9 and Connor, 11) and other children her age. Ellie’s community falling in love with the little girl, raised enough money for new carbon-fiber Cheetah Flex-Foot prosthetic legs, same as those used by Paralympic sprinter, Oscar ‘Blade Runner’ Pistorius. This makes Ellie the youngest person ever to have carbon fiber prosthetic legs. On the first day of her school, Ellie walked on her own in her new carbon-fiber Cheetah Flex-Foot prosthetic legs. Girls’ achievements and interests in math and science are shaped by the environment around them.
  • Why bother, really? Set a an example Operate at your full potential Keep your tools sharp How much have you learned in the last year? Will you in the next year? Help your club members improve To stop growing is to start dying
  • Careful Planning Plan speaking opportunities and roles Create speaking opportunities, and plan for a TM to evaluate E.g. speech at work, invite a club member to attend and evaluate Offer to speak at District Events / Train Club Officers Area Governor: at every club visit, make a manual speech Careful Tracking No one else will track it for you! Be familiar with the criteria, and complete the requirements Find Mentors to help you get there! Ask other DTMs
